This first floor room has a super comfy double bed, large L-shaped desk, custom 6 foot closet with lots of hanging and shelf space, a ceiling fan, AC and heat vents, large casement windows, and a natural sisal rug. It's a great room with open space.

The Space

This is a small bedroom, which can only accommodate one person. It's on the first floor of our house. The kitchen, living room, and dining room are on the same floor.

Upstairs are additional bedrooms, with other guests, who will be using a different bathroom. You should expect to share the kitchen, living room, and dining room with other house members but your room is your own.

The neighborhood is suburban, has lots of shops and restaurants nearby, and public transportation is within 1 mile of the house. You can walk to bus or train stations which will take you to NYC ( 30 - 40 minute train ride ) or the the Hamptons or Montauk.

My place is unique in that it's large but cozy. Home is where the heart is and I love my home and I love sharing it. If you want quiet, curl up in the living room or on the back deck and read. If you want company, there's usually someone willing to talk or listen to you! I love my home and I'm sure you will too! It's the best that Long Island has to offer.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the living room, dining room, kitchen, and den, as well as the backyard and pool in the warmer weather.

Interaction with Guests

I follow my guests' guidelines when it comes to interactions. Although most of my guests are students, and quietly read or study during the week, many people will gather in the kitchen for conversation when they want company. I am home most evenings for those who want to chat and love getting to know my guests.

The Neighborhood

You will love EVERYTHING about my neighborhood. It's safe, clean, quiet, peaceful, friendly, and you will be surrounded my nature. My yard and street has huge trees that provide shade in the summer as well as beautiful winter scenery in the winter. Taking a quiet walk through the neighborhood is one of my favorite activities.

Getting around

There is convenient parking right in front of my house, and public transportation via buses is only 6 blocks away. The Long Island Railroad is within 20 minutes walk and will take you quickly into NYC if you want to go there. Trains and buses will also take you to museums, beaches, vineyards, botanical gardens, and every kind of store you can possibly imagine.

Other Things to Note

One thing you should know about your accommodations is that, in addition to your room and the clothing closets and drawers that are included in that space, you will have your own shelves and drawers in the kitchen to store whatever food you might want to purchase and prepare on your own. Each guest (email hidden) for their groceries and basement storage for large, bulky items as well.

  • Geri is an extremely gracious hostess. Her home is beautiful and my bed was comfortable. I highly recommend her home to anyone staying in the area.

    April 2014
  • I stayed at Geri's house for 6 weeks. Geri was the best hostess ever! She had every question answered before I even asked her! She is very accommodating and takes good and VERY PERSONALIZED care of every guest. From the moment you meet Geri, you will feel like a part of the family! Indeed, she goes above and beyond to make you feel at home!

    The room was exactly what I was looking for: spacious, clean and quiet. The house is in a safe neighborhood and is close to major shopping plazas, restaurants, schools, hospitals, bus and railroad (LIRR) stations, etc.

    Overall, Geri's house is truly a Long Island gem and a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED place to stay!!!

  • My entire family stayed in Geri and Tom's house for the weekend of my wedding. They were very helpful, accommodating and always willing to lend a hand when they could. You can't go wrong with Geri and Tom.

  • Geri and Tom are superb. They are two of the most generous people I've ever met. Geri (email hidden), respectful of her guests and extremely accommodating. This household is the epitome of the airbnb experience. Not only were the hosts great, but the other housemates have been exceptional. Seeing how the Shea's have helped those who stay in the house, and getting to know those people has been a most edifying experience.

About
I'm originally from Indiana, and moved to NY when I was 7. I have been married to my husband, Tom ( a native New Yorker) , for 28 years and we have 4 grown children. We both love meeting new people, reading, skiing, traveling, and hosting guests in our beautiful home. I am a 4th grade teacher in Brooklyn, a borough of NYC, and my husband (email hidden) firefighter who owns and manages a sign and awning business. I like to bake, decorate, organize, play piano, take photographs, spend time with my adult children, garden, read, and relax in the backyard. My husband likes to garden, swim, walk, watch the Yankees, BBQ, and spend time with family and friends. We have a great relationship and we are each others' best friends. Our motto is "Find work that you like, and you'll never work a day in your life." and we are both fortunate in that we love our jobs. Another motto that we have live by is to "Live beneath your means." and that has served us very well over the years. We are easy-going but hard-working people and we take pleasure in our home and surroundings. We started hosting on airbnb to help pay for our daughters' wedding (in October 2014) and our son's college (he graduates in 2016) but have loved the experience and meeting so many new people that we will continue hosting for many more years. We love our house, and you will too!
